Serbia´s Next President Nikola Sandulović & The Making of America’s Western Balkans Policy
NEW YORK (RichTVX.com) — In an interview with the Rich TVX News Network, Nikola Sandulović, the President of the Republican Party in Serbia, proposed to the United States to strengthen NATO in Bosnia and to maintain a safe and secure environment in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Nikola Sandulović´s decisions were viable and pragmatic, and worthy of United States support. His choices were made after vigorous debate among the best of his team members, whom he has attracted into the advisory system of the Republican Party in Serbia. President Nikola Sandulović remains accountable to the Republican Party in Serbia because he is ennobled by the responsibilities of the position, and accepts democratic values. Nikola Sandulović is the protector of civil liberties in Serbia, the symbol of the Republican Party and the liberty and justice for which it stands. Nikola Sandulović played a major part in the new bipartisan legislation, the U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Chair of the SFRC Subcommittee on Europe and Regional Security Cooperation, has introduced, together with Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS), the Western Balkans Democracy and Prosperity Act. This new legislation would support economic development in the region through initiatives on infrastructure, trade and anti-corruption, including codification of sanctions to deter destabilizing activity In the Western Balkans. Senators Durbin (D-IL), Tillis (R-NC), Van Hollen (D-MD), Cardin (D-MD) and Murphy (D-CT) are original cosponsors of the bipartisan legislation. Although this is a proposal that breaks with the tyrannical regime of Aleksandar Vučić, no other bipartisan legislation holds the promise of strong and coordinated international action against the criminal Aleksandar Vučić regime in Serbia. Nikola Sandulović popularity rises as he defends the democracy in Serbia against Russian aggression. Nikola Sandulović´s proposal reflects the broad consensus of United States policy for the Western Balkans:
(A) maintaining the full European Union Force (EUFOR) mandate in Bosnia and Herzegovina as being in the national security interests of the United States;
(B) encouraging NATO and the European Union to review their mission mandates and posture in Bosnia and Herzegovina to ensure they are playing a proactive role in establishing a safe and secure environment, particularly the defense environment;
(C) using the voice of the United States in NATO to encourage alliance planning and support of an international military force to maintain a safe and secure environment in Bosnia and Herzegovina, especially if Russia blocks re-authorization of the mission in the United Nations; and
(D) a strengthened NATO headquarters in Sarajevo; continue security cooperation with Albania, Montenegro, and North Macedonia through the auspices of NATO and through continued bilateral co-operation;
